The FoAM urban laboratory in Brussels is researching how people and plants can live and work together to create a healthy environment. Their Resilients Salon is a relaxed event with thematically linked food and drink open to everyone. Entry is payable by tomato, home grown or otherwise. The tomatoes will be made into a tasty soup.
It’s the latest trend: producing food in the middle of the city. Urban farming in Brussels is alive and has potential. Maarten Roels (Ghent University) will give a guided bus tour of several town gardens and urban farms.
